I am in the Toronto area (living in Richmond Hill, York Region) and am looking for some games or groups that don't mind taking on players undergoing the daunting airsoft learning curve. I feel like I'll pick up the tactics and the etiquette quite quickly, it'll just be a matter of learning my equipment and becoming comfortable in a slightly different environment. I am VERY excited for my first airsoft game, but I also wonder if my ONE hi-cap (200rd) mag will be good enough for my first game, or if it's necessary to purchase a second mag first; I figured I'd just load up my speedloader and stick that in a pouch.
Any help is greatly appreciated! One of the things that drew me towards airsoft was the quality of people in the airsoft crowd - you all seem pretty friendly and helpful so far!
There's really not much of a learning curve. Two or three games and you'll know all the basics you'll need. Applying them well is what takes time, and you'll only learn that with practice.
